My Cousin just sent this to me. I thought you would all enjoy it...
'We cannot see her but she is with us still. A mother is more than a memory. She is a living presence. Your mother is always with you. She's the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street; she's the smell of certain foods you remember, flowers you pick and perfume that she wore; she's the cool hand on your brow when you're not feeling well; she's your breath in the air on a cold winter's day.
She is the sound of the rain that lulls you to sleep; the colors of a rainbow; she is your birthday morning. Your mother lives inside your laughter and she's crystallized in every tear drop.
A mother shows through in every emotion - happiness, sadness, fear, jealousy, love, hate, anger, helplessness, excitement, joy sorrow - and all the while hoping and praying you will only know the good feelings in life.
She's the place you came from: your first home, and she's the map you follow with every step you take. She's your first love, your first friend, even your first enemy - but nothing on earth can separate you. Not time, not space - not even death!'
